VLADIVOSTOK, May 24 (Itar-Tass) — The prosecutor's office of the Primorye Territory endorsed the indictment against former regional road police chief Alexander Lysenko, accused of exceeding his authority and use of violence.
The criminal case will be forwarded to a court for consideration on the merits, senior aide to the Primorye prosecutor Yelena Telegina said.
The investigator said on May 25, 2011, Lysenko, in performance of his duty, demanded from the participants in illegitimate night street races that they clear the road. When they refused, Lysenko hit one of them, a 20-year-old Vladivostok resident, several times on the head and body, inflicting light injures.
The criminal case was opened immediately after the incident and cause a public stir. In August, Lysenko passed performance review and was reappointed as head of the regional road police department, but in October, he voluntarily stepped down.
